In 2021 the City of Jackson, TN was selected as one of eight U.S. cities that  received a $100,000 grant to participate in Love Your Block (LYB), a grant program that brings city leaders and residents together to build stronger neighborhoods, one block at a time. The Love Your Block program awards mini-grants to residents and community partners to reduce blight and spur neighborhood-driven change.

Mini grants provide opportunities for residents to make minor exterior home repairs, repurpose and revitalize vacant lots, clean-up litter an illegal dumping, install community gardens and create public art installations

In our first year, the program focused its efforts in East Jackson. This year, the program will be including Midtown and Downtown in addition to East Jackson.
